Whitehall's Hometown Heroes Coming To Town! by Dianne Garrett.

The Next Level Football Camp hosted by New York Giant Domenik Hixon and Former Toledo Rocket Anthony Jordan will be July 11 at Whitehall Yearling High School 7 a.m. - 4 p.m. Jordan is currently an assistant football coach at Seton Hill University in Pennsylvania.

Both young men have gone on from their hometown to pursue their dreams, and they want to see other Whitehall youth have every opportunity to do the same. On July 10 they will host an event at Buffalo Wild Wings 5-8 p.m. Autographed football memorabilia will be auctioned, with all proceeds benefitting the WYHS athletic department.

Hixon and Jordan feel it is important to give back to their home community, so the annual event is two-fold. Children have an opportunity to learn from pros, while their alma mater receives a financial boost, as well.

The staff roster is impressive, and follows:

NaShan Goddard - Seattle Seahawks
Brian Clark - Tampa Bay Buccaneers
Steve Cargiale - New York Giants
Chase Blackburn - New York Giants
Mathias Kiwanuka - New York Giants
Michael Matthews - New York Giants
Sinorice Moss - New York Giants
Barry Cofield - New York Giants
Mario Manningham - New York Giants
Charlie Frye - Seattle Seahawks
Lance Moore - New Orleans Saints
John Greco - St. Louis Rams
Tim Crouch - Akron Zips
Tyree Pollard - Toledo Rockets
Andrews Hawkins - Toledo Rockets (TV: "4th and Long" with Michael Irvin and Spike Network
J R Ford - Michigan/Capitol University
Murad Holliday - Kent State Golden Flashes/Gahanna Lincoln High School

Camp Information

Registration is $25 if registered before July 7, and $30 at the gate. Register three children, and the fourth is free. All forms have to be turned in together to qualify. The first 100 to register will receive a special prize at the end of camp.

Also, there will be Q & A sessions with NFL players. Games will be availble to play for a small fee during the camp for friends and family members. Parents are encouraged to attend. Everyone is welcome!

The pair said, "We want this to be about community and family coming together. If you do not have children attending the camp, still come out and have a great time. The WHYS band will have the concession stand open, so you can buy food, water or drinks. All money raised will be donated to Whitehall Schools."

Every registered participant will receive a T-shirt, lunch or dinner, along with a drink.

T-shirts will also be available for sale. Come out for a great time!
